Use calming lavender in this simple Skin-Soothing Lavender Body Lotion Recipe.
Most of the ingredients in this easy-to-make lotion can be found at your local natural-foods store.
1. Add oil and beeswax to a small saucepan and heat over low heat until wax dissolves. Remove from heat immediately.
2. Allow to cool for 1 to 2 minutes. Add lavender essential oil. Set aside.
3. Pour water into a blender and begin blending on high speed with the lid on and the hole in it left open. With blender running, slowly add oil-wax mixture. It will begin to emulsify as you continue pouring in oil.
4. Pour lotion into glass jars. It will last about 6 months and is best kept at cool temperatures, or even in the refrigerator. Makes about 2 cups.
